On a City Sightseeing Edinburgh Hop on Hop off Tour, 14 stops will carry you from the dizzy heights of Arthur’s Seat, to the narrow wynds of the Old Town. There’s tonnes to see and do so get busy!

The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which means turn any corner and you’ll come across something fascinating. At Edinburgh Castle you’ll find the oldest crown jewels in the country, as well as the fantastically titled, Stone of Destiny. It’s a powerful symbol of Scottish Monarchy so you’ll have to see any ancient power rubs off on you! Fans of fable will also enjoy a trip up to Arthur’s Seat: a prehistoric and, luckily for the locals, extinct volcano.

During the summer the city is filled with the sounds of the Fringe festival, while winter brings with it the sweet smells of Christmas markets. On any average day wind your way along the Royal Mile or hear all about Edinburgh’s gruesome past with audio commentary from Terry Deary - author of kids’ classic, Horrible Histories.
